The issue is that php5 depends on "libapache2-mod-php5 |
libapache2-mod-php5filter | php5-cgi"; i.e., it does allow you to do
this, but *by default* will depend on the apache versions.

If you wish to use PHP5 with cherokee, you need to explicitly select
php5-cgi, like so:

apt-get install cherokee php5-cgi

That should fix your problem.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
